Every spring, like clockwork, and usually around Easter, I always want to make recipes my Nonnie might have made. As a kid, my family would spend Easter with my grandparents at their home in south Florida. They moved around a bit, but I spent most of my time in Jupiter, which is one of my favorite places.

I’m always missing my grandma, but especially around holidays like Easter when we’d usually spend time with them. When it came to Easter entertaining, and serving my family in general, Nonnie kept meals simple yet still delicious. And played up all the extras. She would even dress up as the easter bunny!

The thing to know about Nonnie is that she loved to cook, but only simple dishes that she just knew everyone would love.

The first night we would spend with them over spring break, she’d usually make, chicken and rice with asparagus. Or maybe a nice piece of beef with potatoes and asparagus.

She used to love to use that honey balsamic dressing they sell at the store. She would bake up the chicken in the dressing, and at the same time, she’d be roasting potatoes and asparagus.

Oh, and warming bread too. Nonnie ALWAYS served warm bread with salted butter for every single meal. It was her favorite…we always knew we would love my Nonnie’s meals.

Anyway, she inspires me every spring to cook some kind of chicken and asparagus dinner. And wow, I just adore this year’s recipe. It’s just what she would love. I know it!

Now the details

The first thing I like to do is roast the potatoes since they take longer to cook than the chicken. Simply olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then throw on the asparagus too.

For the chicken, I like to use a mix of skinless, boneless, chicken thighs and breasts. Most of the people I feed regularly prefer chicken breasts, but I like to toss in a couple of boneless thighs for added flavor. Plus, Creighton loves them. Use what you like best, all thighs, all breasts, or a mix.

The seasoning is simple, lots of dried or fresh thyme, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, sesame seeds, a touch of paprika, chili flakes, and then of course, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Once the potatoes have cooked a bit, add the chicken to the sheet pan. If the asparagus is looking cooked, pull it off the pan to avoid overcooking it. If it’s not ready just yet, keep an eye on it towards the end.

The dressing

A simple mix of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon, honey, chili flakes, and salt. I add lots of fresh basil and a pinch of fresh thyme too.

Then add the olives, which give this a yummy saltiness. Trust me, the olives make the chicken.

To finish, grab a block of feta cheese and break it over the chicken, then take the dressing and spoon it over the entire sheet pan. So delicious you guys!

I love to serve this with buttered bread on the side. Just as Nonnie would! It’s perfect for scooping and soaking up all the yummy sauce and flavor on the pan.

    I Made this recipe with chicken thighs and no olives, but still loved it. Served it with some brown rice.
    A nice, simple to prepare meal.

    Amazing and super easy, even for a novice cook! Used banana peppers as I couldn’t find pepperochinis. Loved it!

    Made this last night for my family and it was so simple and tasty. I’m not typically an olive person, but that dressing was perfection! Loved the combination of flavors, will definitely be making this again!

    I made this tonight and OMG! So good. I over cooked the chicken a little, but it was still delicious. Even my very picky 6 year old had two servings. Thank you for sharing this! All the ingredients merry so well. I only used flat leaf parsley as my fresh herb and it worked just fine.

    Unbelievably easy and delish! The sauce adds some serious oomph. My husband said this recipe uncovered taste buds he didn’t know he had. Will make many more times. You’re simply amazing, T!

    1. Hey Caitlyn,
      So glad to hear that this dish turned out well for you, thanks for making it! Thanks for your kind message:) Have a great Saturday! xT

  6. This was a joy to make and an easy clean up. Can be made ahead to be ready to throw in the oven when ready. I added 1 Tbs of honey to the dressing, extra lemon juice and used green beans because I did not have asparagus on hand and was too lazy to hit the store. It was absolutely delicious!!! My husband was thrilled! Thank you for the wonderful recipe! It was a joy to eat!

    Nous avons beaucoup aimé!! Fait avec des poitrines de poulet et mariner quelques heures avant la cuisson. Nous avons aussi diminué la quantité d’herbe fraîches à 1 tasse. Parfait souper d’été! 🙂

    This is a SUPER delicious recipe! I used chicken breasts, a little less dried thyme and it was very flavorful and easy. I thought the sauce was a wonderful addition but it is also delicious on it’s own. Definite weeknight meal- a lined pan makes for easy clean-up. Your photography is stunning- love that your work with your Mum, too! Thank you both for your hard work- it is so appreciated here in our kitchen.

    It stated 2 cups of Thyme, basil or parsley which seemed excessive. I just did 2 Tbls of each and combined them.
    Great recipe.

    This meal was absolutely delicious!! The flavors were incredible together. And it was quite a refreshing start to summer meal. The feta cheese, green olives and balsamic along with the herbs were terrific. I had a bite of chicken with an olive and some feta cheese and it was so good I told my family to make sure they taste a bite with those flavors together. I highly recommend this dish!! And the fact that it was a sheet pan meal, there wasn’t much clean up after the prep dishes. Thank you for the delicious recipes. I have made several of your meals and each one has been a winner!

    1. Hey Carly,
